The digital revolution is boosting demand for digital skills and competencies requiring investment in infrastructure, digital devices, resources and tools and digital competencies for the next generation to deal with the constantly changing demands. With respect to the current scene, the DISIPASS project introduces digital citizenship to people aged 14 to 18, with a specific focus on young people with fewer opportunities (such as NEETs, marginalized, with a migrant background and young refugees, early school leavers etc.)
Digital citizenship refers to the ability to engage positively, critically and competently in the digital environment, drawing on the skills of effective communication, practice forms of social participation respectful of human rights and dignity through the responsible use of technology.
The project pioneers to design a Teaching Package to promote digital citizenship competencies to the young people. The main objective of the project is to support youth workers to develop a positive attitude towards digital citizenship. In the light of promoting the development of responsible, ethical, global citizens, the project also envisages to establish the DICIPASS 4YOUTH programme and Code of Conduct among youth organizations.
The consortium is consisted of strong and experienced partners from Cyprus, Belgium, Germany, Greece and Lithuania, and is committed to efficiently and effectively
implement the Project thus to achieve project objectives.
